Consider painting the left gable dark to match the brick, or just a dark color that complements your new paint scheme.

Your new roof looks terrific! I love your stone too. In my opinion I would paint the siding that surrounds the window to the left of the front door a color that is in your stone (not the brick).

Agree with ppf that the left gable should be a dark color to blend with the brick or the stone.

For the shutters I would paint the shutters a darker gray/blue as shown in the shutter example below. Click on the photo name to get details. I would also add shutter hardware to the shutters for that finishing touch :) You can see the hardware on these shutters below. It can be purchased separately and isn't expensive.

Paint your front door including the sidelight the same gray/blue as your shutter color.
